Acting Director, Diagnostic Molecular Pathology Laboratory
Maria E. Arcila

I am an anatomic and clinical pathologist who specializes in molecular genetic pathology and hematology.

As a molecular genetic pathologist, my work primarily involves the study and detection of genetic changes in cancer tissue. These changes can be used to diagnose and confirm the presence of individual cancer types and help tailor patient-specific treatment, determine patients' prognosis and risk of recurrence, and monitor their disease once they start therapy. As a hematopathologist, I work closely with our clinical colleagues to diagnose diseases that affect the blood and the lymphoid systems. I directly examine tissue and blood samples to diagnose, stage, and monitor hematologic cancers including leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and other diseases at both the morphologic and the molecular levels.
